    The 'Fresh Banana' cake is a combination of banana bread and cake; Moist, rich and delicious, albeit pricey. The red velvet cake is on the dry side; You can find better elsewhere (notably Chile Pies).

    Free WiFi. Decent place to get work done. Delicious cakes, large portions- perfect for the inner fat kid in all of us. Friendly staff. Oh, and there's pet fish in the back.

    Lots of cakes to choose from! I loved the Mixed Berry Cheese cake and German Chocolate. The German Chocolate is a little too sweet.

    If you like being threatened with security and getting kicked out this is the place. Rude staff gave us 5 mins warning they were closing and wouldn’t allow us to finish our cake. Never ever returning.

    Went once. That's enough. Not really a coffee shop. Good if you're there to hang out only.

    They are famous for cinnamon roll here but it's not just cakes - you can have breakfast.

    The "peanut butter and chocolate cake" sign should read "peanut, butter, and chocolate cake"

    Poor customer service, rude employees, no signs to indicate that they’re closing early on a Saturday night, served food in plastic to-go containers. This place is on the decline! Sad!
